The warm front we have been experiencing in Toronto made a sudden exit this past weekend, and left chilly weather in its place. I had plans made with local blogger babes for brunch, and didn't want to show up in your typical parka and boots - how boring, right? Instead of your typical cold-weather uniform I opted to layer knits underneath a leather jacket, replace the boots with some fun leopard pumps and top it all of with a pom-pom toque (that's Canadian for beanie.) While it was cold, and I look borderline freezing in these photos, it actually wasn't so bad; its amazing how wearing a warm hat can make a world of a difference! Winter may be well on it's way, but with strategic layering and warm accessories you don't need to sacrifice style in the cold.

Those of you who follow me on Instagram may remember that I was debating whether or not I should sell my beloved 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli. As much as I love this bag, I was growing tired of it and thought that selling the purse to invest in another may solve the problem. Enter the purse pom - now that I have this fun accessory hanging from my Lim, I feel as though I have a whole new bag! For now, I'm holding off on selling the bag and have been enjoying it with the pink pom from Mendocino. For those of you who have older handbags that you've grown tired of, give a purse pom a try - it may be just the trick to breath life into an old bag!
Sure it's not the most appropriate cold-weather outfit option but I'll sacrifice a little fashion for function, especially when brunch is involved! How are you coping with the colder weather? Let me know!
